fall outfit

I'm finally getting back on schedule today. I asked yesterday on Instastories which post you would prefer - a Fall OOTD collage or a Q&A. It was super close but Fall OOTD ended up the winner! I still plan on doing the Q&A so please message me with your questions. Today's post is a chic, girly Fall outfit that I pulled together from new items I found online. I can't get over these leopard print mules that are under $90! They are dupes for a designer pair but look just as nice. I'm also obsessing over this shirt dress in burgundy paired with the blouson sleeve cardi - the perfect combo! 

I hope everyone has a fabulous, cool weather weekend. I've been loving the cooler temps this week here in Virginia. I actually got to pull out my sweaters and UGG boots because it was in the 40's. And I'm already cold natured so I even wore a winter jacket one morning when appliances were being delivered lol. If you've been keeping up with me on IG you know that we finally have a fridge, washer, and dryer... unfortunately the wrong fridge, but that should get fixed Saturday. We also had quite a few higher priced items damaged by our movers and are waiting for a claim to go through to replace them - so disappointing! 

On the plus side, we finally get to go grocery shopping (woohoo!) and will finally be getting settled minus a few minor things that need to get done. Boy! Moving cross country + buying a home is a lot of work. Super grateful but definitely ready to relax on the couch with some candy and watch 13 Days of Halloween. I live for Freeform holiday movies! 


How To Start A Blog | A Beginner's Guide

Recently, I've been receiving a lot of questions about blogging. How to start a blog, blogging recommendations, pieces of advice, how to make money, what is LiketoKnow.it, etc. I'm always happy to respond and have no qualms talking about this subject, but it's such a long answer it can be quite time consuming to email or DM repeatedly. So I thought I'd create a post with simple steps on "How To Start A Blog" for anyone interested.

You Guys! Today is the day. We finally get to close on the house this afternoon! We are extremely excited to finally move in as it seems like it's been forever (really it's been a month lol). We have to run over to the house this morning to make sure all of the final touches have been completed and then Justin has to sign on the dotted line! I'm so incredibly proud of him for working so hard to make this home a reality. Hashtag PROUDGIRLFRIEND. All of our belongings will be arriving Saturday and we can't wait to get everything put away. It'll be a little crazy for a bit as our washer and dryer won't be coming for a little while so I'm sure our laundry room will be full by the time they do lol. We also still need to get a refrigerator and blinds... but that should be done super soon! You don't realize how crucial appliances are until you don't have them. I'm excited to make a grocery trip so I can go back to eating healthy and to actually start cooking again. 

For today's post, I wanted to share ten new Fall pieces on-trend and under $50. There are so many amazing knits and sweaters for very affordable prices this year! As you'll see above, there's no need to spend an arm and a leg on your cool-weather wardrobe. EXCEPT on essentials like jeans, boots, and coats. Sometimes it pays to spend more on staples. I'm absolutely loving the cinched waist dress in blush! I think it would wear well for work, dressed up, or even for more casual days. I also highly recommend the camisole because they are so practical and perfect for having on hand when you want to throw on a cardigan or a leather jacket. The one above comes in three colors tailored to the season. 

Have a fabulous weekend and follow me along on IG Stories as we move into the house!


Our Day Trip To Tahoe

Hello, Friends! It feels like it's been so long since I last posted. I'm quite tardy with today's post as I missed Monday but hey, better late than never right?! I'm super excited to share this special set of photos today. Justin and I decided to head up to Tahoe on our last day in California because, in our two years of living there, had never gone (gasp). Our friends were constantly telling us how much we were missing out. So we couldn't leave without seeing it for ourselves and took a fun day trip to see the sites and to take some scenic photos. 


Current Makeup Routine

Happy Friday! I've had a ton of makeup questions lately so I decided to write an updated makeup post with all of my favorite products and the order in which I use them. Recently, on Instastories I shared a quick impromptu makeup tutorial and promised I'd link and share all the products on the blog... so here you go! 


A Tailgating Outfit | Plaid For The Win

I'm so excited to share this week's Wear It Wednesday post with you! I created a Fall look with this gorgeous plaid infinity scarf from Frou Frou & Frill and after, decided this would be the perfect tailgating outfit. The scarf adds just the right amount of color and pattern - I love the mustard and teal green! How cute would it be to recreate but with the colors of your favorite team?!
